Bicyclist killed in early-morning crash along Farrington Hwy.

A Waianae man was killed while riding his bicycle near Maili Point Thursday.

It happened at around 5:14 a.m. on Farrington Highway, east of Kaukama Road.

According to police, the 39-year-old bicyclist was crossing the highway diagonally when he was hit by a van.

He was taken to Waianae Coast Comprehensive Health Center in critical condition and later died.

Police shut down the eastbound lanes of the highway, between Mailiili Road and Hakimo Road, to investigate and clear the scene.

The Waianae Bypass Road was opened to help alleviate town-bound traffic during the morning rush hour.

It’s unknown at this time if speed, drugs, or alcohol were contributing factors.

This is the fourth traffic fatality on Oahu compared to three at the same time last year.
